GT EV

There's a gorillion electric crossovers but why hasn't anyone made an electric GT?

>Muh weight
It doesn't have to be light. It's a GT.

>Muh cost
Every car is expensive.

>Muh range
People who buy GTs already have another car anyway. These are bought as second or third cars.

>Muh masculinity
If driving an EV offends your masculinity, you never had it to begin with.

    Uh range is very important to a GT. GT means Grand Tourer. It's meant to go fast and far.

        Except it is. Stop lying, shill.
        I can fill up my car in less than 10 minutes any time, anywhere, meanwhile EV charging depends entirely on weather and place. If stuck with non-turbo charger or outside big city, that shit takes several hours.

          DC fast chargers are so common now in the US that not being able to find one within a 250 mile radius is rarely an issue.

    The real answer is because coupe buyers and EV buyers are both niche markets that don't have much overlap.
    Pic related is probably the closest thing to an electric GTer.

      Wdym "closest?" It is a GT.

      OP here. I forgot about the Charger coupe. It'll basically be in a class of its own when it releases.

      Too bad it costs a house. I can't imagine a better daily driver, though.

      More EVs were sold in 2023 than any year prior.

      People don’t collect and resell iPhone 1s, 2s etc. They’re outdated pieces of shit. Same goes with electric cars. You’ll dump $90k on a stupid flashy electronic widget (in this case, a vehicle) and in 5 years you’ll be lucky to get five thousand for it.

      >automakers raise prices
      "WTF? EVS ARE TOO EXPENSIVE!!!"
      >depreciation occurs
      "WTF? EVS ARE TOO CHEAP!!!"

      the Mach E is already a thing

      The Mach-E is more of a small family crossover.

      maserati made one. gran turismo folgore or something like that

      Oh yeah, I forgot about that one.

      the GT can't sit low enough with those batteries underneath the car.

      The BYD Blade battery is extremely thin. I'm not sure if it can be oriented horizontally, though. All the photos show it mounted vertically. If not them then I'm sure someone will figure out how to make a compact battery for sports cars. There's more EV battery form factors than ever before.

        The Speirling has a 60kWh battery in a tiny car that weighs under 2200lbs, and most sports cars don't need anywhere near the kind of power it can deliver.
        I suspect the new electric Porsche 718 will have a similar capacity, probably mounted behind the driver like the pack in the original Tesla Roadster which had a bit less capacity at 56kWh.
        Sports cars really aren't that much of a problem for mounting a battery, because they already often make big packaging concessions to fitting over-sized powertrains compared to other classes of vehicle.

        As for the Blade form-factor, I don't think there is any reason why they couldn't be used flat mounted, except that it would make the thermal management system less space efficient since the vertical mount works the thermal layers in a more space efficient manner.

          Placing the battery where the engine would normally be in a mid engine vehicle is probably ideal since it would have better weight distribution. A wide battery probably isn't good for handling.

      People are often stupid and don't realize what they've actually got and only look at what somebody in marketing thought it should be. Maybe not iPhone, but look at what computer enthusiasts do with cheap phone hardware based single board computers.

      >in 5 years you’ll be lucky to get five thousand for it.
      $5000 Porsche Taycan.

      Not going to lie. Sounds like an excellent situation for car enthusiasts. Swap a cheap third-party battery into cars with motors that can easily produce a lot more power than they do with their setup from the factory.

      Its like the 60s or 90s cars everybody here loves. You think everybody liked Beetles, Mustangs, Golfs or Civics back then?
      No. They were common cars that were undervalued. That's why people used them as the base to build them into cars that were special.

      This is the future ahead for cars like the Model 3.
